Friendship with conditions

Heart is a bit heavy today

It’s… because of the things around,

Perhaps

Is it because of the house?

It’s discolored walls,

Cracks and leaks

… I can handle all that with money

But it is the people,

People, close and distant

Matured and grown ups

It is high time it was decided

A delay can cause unnecessary trouble

The trouble could grow

Grow into a demon beyond control

The point is not how many

And for how long the troubles have been

The point also is ‘why’ have I been tolerating them?

You think whatever you say, has a meaning

And my words make no sense?

Then we don’t belong to each other

If you feel you are in a jail

I too am choking to death

Like you are proud of the way you think

I too might have respect for my thoughts

You wish to insult me?

Go ahead and insult my looks,

My shabby sloppiness

But don’t insult my ideas

No one is permitted to do that

I love my way of thinking

Just like you do

My thoughts are also unique in the world

Just like yours

They are precious

They are pretty

They are full of intelligence

They don’t lack anything

Just like yours

No one has a right to look down upon them

To insult them

They are products of my mind

They are pious for me

Just like God is for everyone

This will be a hard decision

But showing respect for my thoughts,

Will be mandatory for my friendship

If you say,

What is I say is, ‘wrong’

Then let us not waste time

I will turn left from next cross road

You take the right

And then be right, forever
